Seminar IDENTITY/REALITY CHECK by Ann Schomburg & Sascha Boldt

August 02 – 04, 2016, 10 am – 1 pm

Many thanks to the artists Ann Schomburg & Sascha Boldt for their seminar “Identity/Reality check”.

“Within their artistic practice Ann Schomburg and Sascha Boldt are dealing with definitions of art within given powerstructures. Questions like what is supposed to be art, where are the limits of acceptance are questioned in different kinds of media. The main focus of Sascha Boldt’s interest is dealing with the hybrid architecture of reality perceptions. Ann Schomburg analyzes the contemporary entertainment needs and habits with reinacted images of YouTube story time videos. Schomburg and Boldt are giving an insight into their development of new works, from the concept to a form to an exhibition.

Each artistic position starts differently. Some are overfloated with ideas and need to pic some and realize, others try to find a form for a concept and some fight with the blank canvas. Starting with the participants individual situations the different possibilities of artistic production will be analyzed and developed considering the following questions:

  • Where is the interest into a theme, a form or an idea at the beginning?
  • Which techniques might make sense to realize this?
  • Creative project management
  • Which are the main focuses of the participants and where are common interests?
  • Artist-teams and supporting each other.” (Ann Schomburg & Sascha Boldt)
